Hydrogen: Has its time come?

The promise of a hydrogen economy has waxed and waned, but the falling cost of renewable energy could be the game changer that makes hydrogen fuel economic.

In a recently published article, Prof. Michael Brear, Director of the Melbourne Energy Institute, discusses how large-scale renewable electricity from wind and solar is now starting to reach prices that make renewable powered hydrogen production plausibly economic.

Read Prof. Brear’s article here, which was published in Pursuit - the University of Melbourne’s academic research publication, presenting cutting-edge research and commentary from academic experts across the university.

Prof. Brear also recently presented on the future of hydrogen in Australia at the MEI Symposium on 12 December. Access his presentation slides here.
